The creators behind Did You Know Gaming are teaming up with developer Lost in Cult to launch a fundraising campaign for a multiplayer card game. Up to four players can team up to take on the card-based trivia dungeon crawler. Together, the team is looking to raise £60,000 — roughly $75,000.
To add additional replayability, players will choose from 18 colorful player characters to take on the challenge. Each player character comes with different health, inventory space and a unique ability.
Players will work together to defeat deadly foes from a deck of 100 monsters. To deal damage, players will have to answer a trivia question correctly. These trivia questions range in difficulty from easy, medium and hard. Damage dealt will scale with the question’s difficulty.
When monsters are defeated and banished to the graveyard, players will draw from the 140 cards in the Loot Pile. This deck contains useful consumables and gear alongside traps and game winning relics. Once players collect four relics, they will summon one of five endgame bosses. Players will win and escape the Did You Know Gaming trivia dungeon if they can takedown this boss.
